    I'm been having trouble uploading large files... Fetch drops the connection for some reason- here's the transcript:

    My first guess is that you are out of space in your account on the server; it looks like you have almost exactly 20 MB in your account, so you may have a limit of 20 MB of storage. Unfortunately most servers don't give a useful message when you are out of space - they just drop the connection in the middle of an upload. You should contact the folks who run your server and see what, if any, your storage limits are.

    If you're sure you have enough storage space to upload the files you're trying to upload, please give Fetch's resume upload feature a try. It will let you start the upload where you left off after the connection is dropped, instead of always starting at the beginning. (Not all servers support resume upload, but many do.)

    For information on using the resume upload feature, see the Resuming uploads topic in Fetch Help (or just click the link here).

    Let us know if this helps or not; if not, we can try to investigate further.
